What is the Walk-In Clinic?

The Walk-In Clinic is designed to be a convenient alternative when you cannot get a same-day appointment with your own physician for an urgent health care need. The medical staff at the Walk-In Clinic will be ready to see you when your doctor cannot. Whether you have the sniffles, a sprain or an allergic reaction, we can give you the medical attention you need, when you need it. With extended hours, walk-in service, and lab and x-ray services on-site, it’s ideal for those times when you can’t plan ahead to get to the doctor. Back to top.

Does “walk-in” mean I’ll be seen right away?

The wait times will depend on the volume of patients at any given time. Since no appointments are made, those volumes will be subject to some variation. Back to top.

When should I go to the Walk-In Clinic instead of the emergency room or my primary care doctor?

Doctor examining a patientThe Walk-In Clinic medical staff (including physicians, physician assistants and nurse practitioners) is prepared and equipped to care for the usual illnesses treated in a primary care physician’s office, but will be open with extended hours when your primary care doctor’s office would normally be closed. In the event your primary care doctor is booked, the Walk-In Clinic will be available to you without an appointment.

In addition, most minor, non-life-threatening conditions often seen in hospital emergency rooms can be handled at the Walk-In Clinic. It will provide prompt care for handling minor emergencies, including injuries, wound care, lacerations, sprains, minor broken bones and infections, with an on-site lab and radiology services.

For more serious situations, such as stroke, heart attack, breathing difficulties, severe fractures, loss of consciousness, seizures, severe bleeding or pain, or when patients are in doubt about the seriousness of an illness, patients should visit the hospital emergency room and/or dial 911.

What conditions shouldn't be brought to the Walk-In Clinic?

For serious situations such as stroke, heart attach, breathing difficulties, severe fractures, loss of consciousness, seizures, severe bleeding or pain, or when patients are in doubt about the seriousness of an illness, patients should visit the hospital emergency room and/or dial 911. In addition, annual physicals, medication refills, lab result inquiries, or chronic/recurring medical issues should be handled with a primary care provider rather than at the Walk-In Clinic.  Back to top.
